Newsforge reports ActiveState's announcement of the Simple Web Service API for scripting languages.
ActiveState and members of the open source community announced today, at the Web Services Edge Conference, the Simple Web Service API. This is a standard method for scripting languages to access Web services described with the Web Services Description Language (WSDL). For the first time, leading developers from the Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby and Tcl communities are working together to create a common solution. With ActiveState coordinating their activities, a consistent, high quality implementation will be available sooner to the millions of programmers that use these languages.

A beta implementation of the Simple Web Services API is available for download for Python, Perl and PHP, with support for Ruby and Tcl coming soon. This will make Web service scripting easy for the millions of programmers that rely on one or more of these languages. Scripting languages are ideal for consuming Web services due to their ease of use, rapid development, and availability on all popular computing platforms.
